Montreal Knee Osteoarthritis and Back Pain and Falls

Lumbar spinal stenosis and knee osteoarthritis. The link? They’re both age-related degenerative diseases. (1) Some of us may escape them, but those who are not so lucky can rely on their Montreal chiropractor at Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic to intervene when asked and help with chiropractic spinal manipulation, nutritional advice, and understanding.

KOA and LSS

They are such little abbreviations for such painful conditions. Knee osteoarthritis (KOA) concerns 27 million people. (5) Degenerative changes in the spine are evident in upwards of 95% of those over 50. Spinal stenosis is most evident in adults 60 and older. (6) Degeneration of cartilage has a part in each. Pain results from each. When combined in one person, these two conditions may affect clinical outcomes for each. Lumbar spinal stenosis patients who have back surgery for their condition and also have knee osteoarthritis realize their recoveries a little less beneficial related to social life and activities. Their KOA complicates their ability to do routine work or ordinary activities due to knee pain or restricted knee range of motion. Writers of this paper proposed tempering surgical outcome predictions in patients who are inflicted with KOA. (1) Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic uses Montreal chiropractic services to get back pain and knee pain patients feeling better.

THE IMPORTANCE OF DEALING WITH KNEE AND OTHER PAIN

It’s pretty difficult to ignore Montreal back pain and knee pain. People suffering any type of low back pain and KOA had 2.7 times higher risk of recurrent falls. People who have moderate to severe low back pain and KOA were 3.7 times more at risk for falls. (2) Patients who have KOA and widespread pain vs patients with KOA and low back pain vs patients with KOA and multijoint pain vs those with KOA only, patients with widespread pain and KOA described feeling worse with higher levels of pain sensitization, less function and poorer physical performance. (3) Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic can help though.

CHIROPRACTIC CARE

Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic uses well-researched chiropractic care for knee osteoarthritis and Montreal back pain relief. Chiropractic researchers just recounted that a combination of education, exercise and manual therapy over 6 weeks increased function for two of three patients with knee osteoarthritis. (4) Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic also uses the research-documented, gentle spinal manipulation, Cox® Technic, to reduce intradiscal pressures, widen the area of canal and raise the height of the disc.
